Using the Secondary Menu

In this lesson for macOS Mojave on the Mac, I look at the Secondary Menu. With the Secondary menu, you have access to common tools such as copy, paste, as well as specific features for an app.

Accessing the Secondary Menu
There are a few ways to access the Secondary Menu on the Mac.

  • Control-Click: If you hold down the Control key and click, you’ll see the menu pop up under your cursor. Just select the menu option you want to use when it pops up.
  • Two-finger tap with a Trackpad: If you have a trackpad, you can tap the trackpad with two fingers, when you do this, the menu will pop up under your cursor.
  • Mouse: If you want to access the Secondary Menu with a mouse, you need to open your System Preferences and select the Mouse Preference Pane. From there, you can choose which button you want to use for the Secondary Click.
